Snow Leopard Wireless Problem

10 May 2010 - 03:31 AM

I uploaded to Snow Leopard (finally) and have not been able to get my wireless card, Encore ENLWI-N, to work. On Leopard, I had been using a Ralink driver. Has anyone had any success with getting this card?

I appreciate any advice.

My First Hackintosh Build

30 May 2009 - 04:56 PM

I would like to build a hackintosh and have been following the forums lately. I never built a computer before and need advice picking the components. I am looking to build a computer running Leopard that I can use for video editing (Final Cut Pro & After Effects) and Photoshop. Also, I would like to include a HD TV tuner and a dual monitor set-up. I have been looking at monitors with built in HD tuners. I am not sure which way I should I go. I would like to stay within the $600-$750 price range (not including monitors).

I am really unsure about the case. The ones I have been looking at have a built-in power supply, but it seems I should have good PSU. Should I buy a case and PSU separately?

Another issue is I don't know what wireless card I should purchase. Also, if anyone has suggestions on a good monitor to purchase, please let me know

Here are the components I have been looking at. I appreciate any feedback/advice.

Motherboard: Gigabyte UD3P $110
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 $164.99
Graphics Card: 8600 GTS $30
RAM: OCZ Gold 8GB (4 2GB) DDR2 (or should I get 2 4GB kits) $93
HD: Western Digital 640GB SATA HDD $70
DVD: Samsung $27
Case: HEC case w/ 485 Power Supply $50 or Rosewill combo $80
Card reader: Rosewill Internal Card Reader $12
Wireless Card? (Should I just use a USB adapter?) Gigabyte PCI Wireless Adapter $17
TV Tuner: Difficulty finding one compatible with Mac that is reasonably priced
